Story:

In 2016 Maybot landed in the UK and quickly took power as an unelected dictator. Help her and her cronies run, jump, slide, and shoot their way to a stronger, and more stable leadership. Wreak havoc on the poor, help the elite, and be as naughty as possible in those wheat fields. With your help Maybot can defeat the coalition of chaos; morality, ethics, and hope, bringing back the wealth to the elite few and condemning the many to ordinary working poverty. There are girl’s jobs and boy’s jobs but this is definitely a bot’s job.
